KIEV, November 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich plans to go for an EU Eastern Partnership summit in Vilnius on November 28-29, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Leonid Kozhara told reporters on Monday.
“The Ukrainian president intends to visit the EU Eastern Partnership summit in Vilnius,” the minister stated. Kiev “does not give up the plans for European integration,” Kozhara noted. “Ukraine does not refuse to sign an association agreement. We are speaking about the suspension of the signing process and according to the current situation on November 25 both sides - Ukraine and the EU - are not prepared for this act,” he noted.
The foreign minister confirmed that his ministry had supported the governmental resolution to suspend the preparation to the signing of an association agreement with the European Union. “The Foreign Ministry has supported the decision of the government,” Kozhara, who participated in a decisive government meeting, said. “However, there was acting Foreign Minister Demchenko and he agreed with this,” the minister noted.
The Ukraine-EU association agreement was planned to sign at the EU Eastern Partnership in Vilnius on November 28-29. However, the Ukrainian government decided to stop the preparation to the signing of an association agreement on November 21.
